Breakers / Blushers Anyone?
Any of you mid-atlantic (or similar temp) gardners have any first breaking or blushing tomatoes yet?
My rule of thumb from last year was 37 days after I see my first (non-cherry) tomato, it breaks/blushes with the first hints of red. As its now 36 days from my earliest starts, im now on breaker patrol, and ive got my eye on one tomato in particular.
Its almost as if I can hear it in the garden, calling out to me...you know you want me...ooh is that some color, or am I just teasing you...
Ive probably been out to inspect that one tomato 6 times in the last 24 hours. Neighbors must think im crazy!
